“Zombie Attack” Count Hits 15 After Face Eating in Louisiana

Bookmark and Share

Another incident of human flesh-eating brings the count up to 15 over the last three weeks. Carl Jacquneaux a 43-year-old Louisiana man was arrested for biting off part of another man’s face during an attack on Wednesday according to the Lafayette Parish assistant police chief Kert Thomas.

Todd Credeur was working in his front yard when Jacquneaux appeared and attacked him, chewing off some of his face.  “During the attack, the suspect bit a chunk of the victim’s face,” said Thomas.

Officials continue to be concerned about the epidemic of “zombie behavior” but deny rumors that these instances might be related, or that there could be a virus responsible for the rash of cases.

Paul Standford of the Federal Emergency Task Force warned that there is a hoax email that is circulating on the internet that reads:


I have been hearing about a so called virus known as LQP-79 that started in miami [sic] with a homeless man. its supposedly a virus that causes brain deterioration and led the man to become canabalistic [sic]. It is also said to be highly contagious leading people to believe it will cause some kind of zombie apocalypse.


Standford stated that people should be advised that this email is false and urged, “if you receive the email you should delete it without forwarding it to anyone else.”  According to Standford there is no LQP-79 virus.

Another high profile attack involved a student in Maryland who allegedly admitted to eating his roommate’s brain and heart and stashing the rest of the remains in a dumpster behind a church in Joppatowne.

Alexander Kinyua, a 21-year-old Morgan State University student, told detectives that he had killed Kujoe Bonsafo Agyei-Kodie, who was reported missing Friday, May 25th, and then eaten his heart and portions of his brain. Agyei-Kodie’s severed head and hands were found in the men’s Harford County home.

The first reported attack in this macabre wave occurred in Miami, Fla on May 23rd, when a naked 31-year-old Rudy Eugene stripped a homeless man, Ronald Poppo, 65, and then tore at and ate Poppo’s face for almost 20 minutes while traffic drove by on the busy MacArthur Causeway.

Eugene was shot and killed by Miami Police officer Jose Rivera, while he was still devouring Poppo.

In addition to this most recent attack of Todd Credeur in Louisiana,  there has also been 1 attack in Maryland, 4 in New York, 2 in Georgia, 1 in South Carolina, 2 in North Carolina, 1 in Tennessee, 1 in Virginia and 2 in Florida within the last 3 weeks.

Though the 15 cases do not appear to be related officials continue to investigate to see if there may be a pattern.

    I think it’s a virus. Maybe not LQP whatever but it’s something that’s making people do this. People just don’t go around chewing on each other!

    These are not “zombies.” These are just mentally ill people. It is all copy cat. One person saw it on the news and the others are doing it too. Plane and simple. I am a doctor and I know about these things and it is not a virus! lol

    This is another reason why we should seek help from our vampire masters . They can stop these zombie attacks before they get out of control.
